Surface finish conversion metric to English standard



(-----) 2004

I am a sales engineer for my company and am quoting a brass part for a customer. The part is in metric dimensions. On an internal bore there is a requirement to maintain a surface finish of N5.

I have checked the Machinery's Handbook and could not find the information I need.

I need an RMS surface finish equivalent for N5.

Thanks,

These "N" codes represent the new ISO standards

N5 refers to the following:
Rt - 2.0
Ra - 0.4
CLA -16
RMS - 17.6
